Volunteers Needed to Count Bald Eagles
Release Date: Feb 4, 2011

San Bernardino, Calif., February 4, 2011 - Volunteers are needed to help the Forest Service count bald eagles in the San Bernardino National Forest’s 32nd annual winter bald eagle counts in
the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains on Feb. 12, and March 12.

Concurrent Bald Eagle counts are held at Big Bear Lake, Lake Arrowhead, Lake Silverwood, and Lake Hemet. This year we have added Lake Perris State Park Recreation Area. Volunteers
are stationed at vantage points around the lakes, where they map and note any eagle observations during a 1-hour period on the Saturday mornings listed above. Observations will be repeated
monthly for simultaneous 1-hour census/mapping efforts December through March. ―Through this method, the Forest Service has acquired information about areas eagles use and
fluctuations in population numbers,‖ said wildlife biologist Marc Stamer. ―There’s no experience needed for volunteers and this is a wonderful opportunity to catch a glimpse of our breath-taking
national symbol.

Three remaining eagle counts for this winter are scheduled for the following Saturday mornings: February 12, and March 12. Mark your calendars now. No experience needed. Volunteers should dress warmly and bring binoculars and a watch.
  • Big Bear Lake area volunteers will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Big Bear Discovery Center on North Shore Drive. Contact Marc Stamer at 909-382-2828 for more information.
  • Lake Arrowhead volunteers will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Sky Forest Ranger Station. Contact Marc Stamer, Wildlife Biologist, at 909-382-2828 for more information.
  • Silverwood Lake State Park volunteers should contact the park office for information during business hours of 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at 760-389-2281, and plan to meet at the Visitor Center at 8:00 a.m.
  • Lake Hemet volunteers should plan on meeting at the Lake Hemet Grocery Store at 8:30 a.m. for instructions. Contact Ann Poopatanapong at 909-382-2935 for more information.
  • Lake Perris State Park volunteers should contact the park office for information at 951-940-5600, and plan to meet at the Lake Perris Regional Indian Museum.
